$7 Trillion for Clean Energy

Blog and Run:

CNN has “Pressure, Private Cash, Driving Clean Energy”  – a quick review on a report from the CERA (Cambridge Energy Research Associate).   Daniel Yergin, the Chairman of the CERA,  is estimating that $7 trillion will be invested in clean energy by the year 2030. 

I personally believe that $7 trillion is probably a light estimate, and they’re pegging wind power as the next big thing, when I think it’s going to be solar, but it’s a great reminder, that even in hard economic times, there are areas that will flourish. 

Am I Buying What Nike Is Selling?

According to Money Magazine – Nike is introducing a “green” version of the Air Jordan XX3.  Apparently, the manufacturing process reduces chemicals and waste.

Although I’ll always applaud any company for taking any step towards a greener future, but the reduced toxins in the air don’t take away the bad taste in my mouth when I think of what life is like in a Nike Factory. 

Am I wrong?  Has Nike done enough to straighten up it’s act?  Or should this “green” product be white – as in whitewash.
